Aberrant Ceramics is the artwork of Aaron Nosheny,
ceramic artist and potter in Tucson, Arizona.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, sculpture, hamsas, ornaments, masks, and a variety of other forms.

Self-taught artist on the autism spectrum. I like monsters, insects, weird animals, body horror, horror comedy, Halloween decorations, fast food mascots, kitsch – and all of these creep into my work, but there’s really no overarching theme. I feel like I'm frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can.

Dead-Eyed Caroler Mug

I bought this monstrosity at a flea market in New Jersey around 1995.  I got rid of most of my chaotic kitsch decor from that time, but I can't let this one go.  I'm fascinated that someone thought these pale scary children would look festive and Christmasy.  My confession:  I blackened their eyes to make them look more macabre.
